Welcome to Cortez
and Mesa Verde

    This is where it all began. The Cortez, Dolores and Mancos area is "the archaeological center of the United States." This area was the heart of the Anasazi ("ancient ones") civilization.
    Visitors today can experience hundreds of Anasazi archaeological sites at Mesa Verde National Park, Hovenweep, Escalante and Ute Mountain. Participate in archaeological digs, see exhibits at the Anasazi Heritage Center, watch Indian dancers and listen to Indian storytellers. The area also offers outstanding fishing and boating at McPhee Reservoir, whitewater rafting down the Dolores River, and an excellent golf course. Great selection of Ute and Navajo pottery, jewelry and art at local galleries.
